Shohei Ohtani returned to pitching under the transit a Mars Mercury square, which turned out unfavorable for him and the Angels. Ohtani surrendered five runs and was not able to retire a single Oakland batter.

The Angels’ birthchart has Mars in the Sixth House of pitching. In Ohtani’s return from Tommy John surgery, the Angels’ Mars received an exact conjunction from Mercury at 14 Cancer and a square from Mars at 14 Aries. This is a challenging aspect but it does not necessarily indicate a subpar outing from a pitcher. Usually, a Mercury transit is favorable for a team’s pitching. But the added square of Mars in Aries proved disruptive. An excess of Mars energy can hurt a pitcher’s control. Indeed, Ohtani walked three batters and was never able to harness his control.

Ohtani’s birthchart shows his resonance with the Angels. His Sun of 13 degrees Cancer is conjunct the Angels’ Sixth House Mars. And Ohtani’s Venus in Leo square to Pluto in Scorpio is conjunct the Angels’ Uranus in Leo square to Mercury in Scorpio.
